RECORD-SETTING 3.9 MILLION TOTAL VIEWERS AND 1.6 MILLION ADULTS 18-49 FOR SYFY ORIGINAL MOVIE

ONE BILLION TWITTER IMPRESSIONS - THAT'S NOT A TYPO!

MOST SOCIAL MOVIE ON TV EVER

BEHEADS GAME OF THRONES IN SOCIAL ACTIVITY

NEW YORK - July 31, 2014 - Lions and tigers and sharks, oh my! Syfy's pop culture sensation Sharknado 2: The Second One absolutely devoured the world during last night's July 30 premiere, becoming the channel's most watched Original Movie ever with 3.9 million total viewers and 1.6 million Adults 18-49. The movie also averaged 1.8 million Adults 25-54.

Sharknado 2 delivered One Billion (yes, with a B) estimated impressions for Sharknado Twitter conversations.

At one point, Sharknado 2 held all top 10 trending topics in the United States. There were more mentions of Sharknado on Twitter than #MileyCyrus on the day of MTV's 2013 VMAs, #kimye on Kim and Kanye's wedding day and #transformers4, #thelegomovie, #godzillamovie and #22jumpstreet on each movie's worldwide premiere day

Sharknado 2 is the most social movie on TV ever and was more social than any episode of Game Of Thrones, The Bachelorette or Survivor.

In addition to the social media storm, Sharknado 2 soared 183 percent among total viewers, 190 percent among Adults 18-49 and 185 percent among Adults 25-54, compared to the first Sharknado movie premiere on July 11, 2013.

Sharknado 2 beat numerous broadcast programs in prime including CBS's Extant, Fox's So You Think You Can Dance and ABC's Motive among Adults 18-49.

Syfy will unleash Sharknado 2 again Saturday, August 2 at 7PM and Sunday, August 3 at 9PM (ET/PT).
